NFL: worrying injury for Tua Tagovailoa; Dolphins loss to Bengals


Tee Higgins had 124 receiving yards and added a touchdown Thursday night to help the Cincinnati Bengals win 27-15 over the Miami Dolphins, who suffered their first loss this season.

Beyond Miami’s setback (3-1), the match was above all the scene of a disturbing scene when Tua Tagovailoa was violently knocked down on the head during the 2nd quarter.

The Dolphins quarterback was evacuated on a stretcher after sustaining neck and head injuries.

Tua suffers a worrying injury

Tagovailoa was tackled on the back by Josh Tupou of the Bengals. The Dolphins quarterback remained on the ground for long minutes while players from both teams gathered around him to pray.

For Cincinnati (2-2), which signed a second victory in a row, Joe Burrow threw two touchdown passes and garnered 287 yards through the air.

The Bengals’ other major came by running back Joe Mixon, who rushed for 61 yards.

Tagovailoa was evacuated from the stadium by ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. The quarterback was conscious as he left the stadium.

Last Sunday against Buffalo, Tagovailoa was tackled hard by Matt Milano late in the first half, on a play where his header seemed to hit the ground.

Once on his feet he staggered and fell, being then assessed in the locker room for a possible concussion. He was back at his post at the start of the third quarter.

After the clash, it was allowed to learn that Tagovailoa was discharged from the hospital, and that he could well travel with his teammates towards Miami.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater came on as a relief in Tagovailoa to complete the game.

True to form, Tyreek picks up a bomb

He turned regularly to star receiver Tyreek Hill, who finished with 160 yards on 10 catches.

Tagovailoa started the game ranked second in the NFL with 925 passing yards.

He is third in the league with eight touchdown passes, including six on Sept. 18 at Baltimore.

The Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) are now the only undefeated team in the NFL.
